Trip to San Antonio

This past weekend Matt and I went down to San Antonio for our "last trip of the summer"! We met our friends Andrea and Tristan down there Friday afternoon and stayed until Sunday. Our hotel overlooked the riverwalk and we had direct access to it, so that was fun! When we got there, we went and walked around the riverwalk. It is so pretty, especially at night! Friday night, we ate on the riverwalk and afterwards went dancing and had some drinks.

Saturday morning, we woke up and decided to go to the Alamo! Matt had never been there before, so he thought it was pretty cool. It was air conditioned inside, so that was a plus.

Saturday night we went to a restaurant called, "La Hacienda de Los Barios". Matt really likes Bobby Flay and he has a show on the Food Network called, "Throw down with Bobby Flay". If you don't watch it, Bobby Flay goes to all different kinds of restaurants and challenges them by making their signature dish in a "throw down". At this restaurant, Bobby Flay challenged the restaurant by making their famous "Fluffy Tacos" (his own rendition of course). Well in that challenge, the restaurant won! So, we had to try these while we were down there.

Here we are eating them..and I have to say, they were awesome!!

After dinner, we went back to our hotel and walked around the riverwalk some more!

We had a great time!!! It was so good to see Andrea and Tristan and spend some quality time with them.

ALSO...Today was the beginning of Challenge 3! I can't belive we are on the third one! I am going to do the maintain challenge since I am at my goal weight. I went grocery shopping today, so this week I should have a good healthy recipe to share with you all! Have a great week everyone!! :)
